Description

Asian marshpepper knotweed, also knows as water-pepper, is cultivated on account of its peppery leaves in Japan and China. It also grows in Europe, preferably on damp ground. The leaves are used fresh, and after brief chewing they develop a
prickling, very unique heat which can't be compared with pepper or chili.
